Not being especially familiar with what the numbers should be in such situations, these seem reasonably healthy ones.

Caught up with Linden this morning (the pretext being to finalise her part of a couple of papers we're working on). She's due next week.

I never used to understand why people would announce the birth weight of their baby and had no idea what was big or small, but now it seems very important! These two are just above average for twins so far.

I had just been wondering how Linden was doing, knowing she was due in June. I’m sure she’d be keen to finish her papers before the baby comes!

She definitely looks like she's close to the finish line :-). I think the papers (one of which is on reconstructing an Adelaide temperature data set back to 1857) are in a state now that I'll be able to get them to submission stage.

The weight of newborn babies was just about the last place that the imperial system held on in urban Australia (inches and points as a unit of rainfall are still alive and well in the country), but that seems to have finally gone metric in the last few years.

The first thing I did on learning the weight of my baby was convert to imperial, mainly for my mum but also for a point of reference. Baby weight in metric just means nothing in my head!

Length however, just in cm!

I have zero idea about pounds but defiantly have to convert for my mum. Our ‘goal’ is for the babies to be 2.5 kilos when they’re born, not that I have any control over the matter..

Ours was only 2.5kg yesterday (up to 2.55 yesterday and allowed home). At this rate your twins will be the same size.
